DIY Candle Jar for Valentine's Day / Winter

This super easy candle DIY looks so pretty in real life! And I'm gonna show you how you can make one of your own!

You'll need:

♥ a mayonnaise jar
♥ white nail polish
♥ pale pink nail polish
♥ silver nail polish
♥ silver glitter nail polish
♥ silver glitter
♥ blue glitter
♥ clear nail polish
♥ a tea light or a little stick candle

1. Draw snowflakes and a few big and small hearts using the white nail polish.

2. Fill in the hearts with the pale pink nail polish as a base.

3. Once dried, put the silver glitter nail polish as a top coat on the big hearts only.

4. Put some clear nail polish on the smaller hearts and before it dries, quickly sprinkle the silver glitter, and tap off the excess. 

5. Clear nail polish the top round opening of the jar, and sprinkle some blue glitter to make it look like some blue frost.

6. The silver glitter nail polish of step 3 must have completely dried out by now, so grab the white nail polish and draw the outer edges once more to give it a nicer defined look.

7. Using the silver nail polish, draw another coat on top of the snowflakes to make them look magical and sparkly.

8. Light the tea light, and drop it in!

As you can see in the pictures above, the patterns on the jar make beautiful romantic shadows when you put a stick candle inside!
